Up here where snow is an expectation rather than an event, people do the same thing. Its bizarre. I cannot recall a snow storm where everything and everyone wasn't dug out and open the next day.People that freak out about less than an inch of snow. Why, just why? Why run to store and act like an idiot buying everything in surplus?
That's crazy! My wife wanted me to get Fleetwood Mac tickets. They were around $350 apiece. I told her there's no way I'd ever pay that, especially without Lindsay Buckingham.the COST of concert tickets nowadays. Roger Waters ($445 each seat) and Rage Against the Machine ($345 each seat).
I am glad i saw my fill back in the day. Most I've ever spent on a ticket was Kiss and Aerosmith.$150 for two headliners. With all of the people downloading music free, this is the end result unfortunately. Bands no longer get paid by the label like they used to. The day of the rock star is over in that way. Most bands charge a ton then tack on meet and greet packages for another $200, after all is said and done a good night will cost upward of a grand. My wife wanted to buy me Misfits tickets at 300 a pop. I have the logo tattooed on my leg since I was a teen. I told her I've seen them before for $15 and would never pay that to see any band.the COST of concert tickets nowadays. Roger Waters ($445 each seat) and Rage Against the Machine ($345 each seat).
I'm able to work from home, so can't relate. However, kudos & Thanks to you & everyone else who works @ grocery stores/reail; all those in the medical profession - especially those who are still going to work @ a doctor's office/hospital/etc. (doctors, nurses, administrative staff, etc.); those who deliver mail/packages/etc.; pharmacists; waste collectors; and everyone else who is working either on the front lines and/or behind the scenes to make sure everything out there is still running as smoothly as possible. If it weren't for all of you, all of the rest of us would be screwed.Well guys and gals wish my luck. I'm one of the few not working at home. I work in a grocery and it has been totally nuts in mornings. I stock shelves overnight but normal freight load has been scarce. Most people has been super nice and thanking me for my hard work. But the amount of people waiting to get in has been insane. As much as 200 in line. That 6 foot rule has not applied there. I've been swarmed at times for food. Safety has become a fact after opening. So curious if anybody else is in same place as me? Essential personnel I've become in this state. It feels good are times , but also dangerous with safety factors in play.
Terrible. I've also seen plastic gloves/wipes discarded all over parking lots, etc. It's not that difficult to just put these in a garbage can. And, why the hell are people still congregating?! This is how the virus spreads. Dumb@$$e$.I'm considered "essential" personal at my job and today I was both upset and disgusted to see multiple pairs of gloves and masks littered in my parking lot. Had to easily be close to 10 different pairs of gloves and at least 5 masks. Alongside my building and about 10 feet roughly from where I saw the bulk of the gloves there are 6 large size garbage cans (completely empty as our pick-up was Friday afternoon) and yet the people who used the gloves and masks couldn't be bothered bringing the gloves/masks to the garbage cans, instead lets dump them on the floor of the parking lot.
there is also a small basketball court across the street from my building (and yes my town has the court caution taped off) where there were 20+ different people all within inches of each other playing basketball like today was just another day.
I get it.. people are bored, people want normalcy to return and for this deadly virus to be long gone.... but how is this going to happen if people can't even throw away gloves, masks or ignore safety guidelines and pretend like nothing is going to happen.
I can't wrap my head around the stupidity / laziness of people.
Agreed. I see/hear the same thing near where I live, and I hate that. These idiots are spreading the virus, but don't care. I hate to say this, but the U.S. government needs to crack down on this $#@#, pronto. If that means soldiers/police going around and forcibly dispersing people that are congregating (whether it means groups of kids playing and/or groups of people talking/socializing/partying/etc.), then so be it. People won't listen on their own, but they will listen if they're threatened with fines/jail time (or both).There is a schoolyard around the corner from my house.Every day there are at least 3-6 mothers there with their gaggle of kids, all over the Jungle gym ( about 10 kids). Not to mention at least 7-8 groups of 4-5 kids riding bikes in the same schoolyard (teens). Thanks for possibly spreading the disease, and prolonging the situation for everyone, you selfish jerks....
Well that's the thing, I wasn't an installer. I was in the office taking calls and setting up appointments for the technicians, also verifying parts so we got the right piece of glass to the techs.If you like working with glass repair or installation then try an auto repair shop on maybe that list. Or even making storm windows for houses. People always looking for new windows or safety doors. Could be a new chance at something you like, even more pay too. Plus you have experience doing it. That's a big plus in that field.
